Piezometers

Application:

Typical applications for piezometers are:

  • Monitoring pore water pressures to determine safe rates of fill or excavation.

  • Monitoring pore water pressures to evaluate slope stability.

  • Monitoring dewatering systems used for excavations.

  • Monitoring ground improvement systems, such as vertical drains and sand drains.

  • Monitoring pore pressures to check the performance of earthfill dams and embankments.

  • Monitoring pore pressures to check containment systems at landfills and tailings dams.
